Steps Towards Modeling and Querying Based on Linguistic Fuzzy Graph Database




Fuzzy logic, Linguistic variable, Fuzzy graph, Graph database


In this paper, we introduce a method for computing with words on linguistic fuzzy graph database (LGD). Computation consists of two processes: Modeling and Querying. The former models LGD as a fuzzy graph whose nodes contain linguistic data table and the later queries linguistic data from node’s data tables.
